Movie stars and singers, who make a lot of money and are famous, are teenager’s admiration. However, they don’t even know the person or their personality. To me admiration is a kind of respect. But there aren’t a lot of people in this world who have that kind of respect from me. My mother is the only person who had entered my life and made me look at things differently.
The first reason that I admire my mother is she teaches me about experience. Experience is what you learn as you go through your life. As a child, you always learned that people really nice and generous. That is not true. As you step into the real world, you will see the person’s real face and all difference schemes, plan to make them success. This had happened to me when I was in sixth grade. When my class has a test and my friend does not know the answer , she asked me what the answer is and I told her what the answer is but when I have a problem and I asked her, she’s never answer me. Instead she said she doesn’t know or she hasn’t got there yet. I was really upset and unhappy but as I have learned this from my mother, I understand why my friend did that and I let it go easier.
Take care for her children first before she can take care of her is the second reason why I admire my mother. Take care of a person is not easy, and take care of you as the same time is even harder. My mother always takes care of me first before she can take care of herself. For example, after a long day of work, she was really tired that she can just go home and has a nap. Instead, she made diner for our family, washed our cloth and took a short time to look at my homework and listened to me complaining about the school, the teacher. And then she gets my bag pack ready for the next day before she can even go to take a shower. Nobody had ever done this for me and there will be no one who would do the same thing like my mother beside her.
In conclusion, I admire my mother because she teaches me about life experience and she takes care of me before she can take care of her. My mother works so hard for our family and for my best. When I grow up I will take care of her as the way she did to me right now. New word:
Generous (a): rộng lượng, bao dung
Scheme (n): sự sắp xếp, phối hợp
Nap (v): ngủ chợp mắt
Everyone always has a person to admire. May be it is an actor, singer or a famous person but with me that is my farther who has been a major influence in my life. My father was always a good role model for me as I was growing up. As an instructor, he tought me many things. When I was four or five years old, he began instructing me how to swim. My father had a good way which helped me could quickly swim. He took me to the pond, put me in water and he pushed me far away from him. At that time, I was very anxious but couldn't think a lot. I only thought about...
